It Happened in Monterey

This song is by Frank Sinatra and appears on the album Songs For Swingin' Lovers! (1956).

It happened in Monterey
A long time ago
I met her in Monterey
In old Mexico
Stars and steel guitars
And luscious lips as red as wine
Broke somebody's heart
And I'm afraid that it was mine

It happened in Monterey
Without thinking twice
I left her and threw away the key to paradise
My indiscreet heart
Longs for the sweetheart
That I left in old Monterey

It happened in Monterey
A long time ago
I met her in Monterey
In old Mexico
Stars, guitars,
Lips red as wine
Broke somebody's heart
And I fear that it was mine

It happened in Monterey
And without thinking twice
I left her and I threw away the key to paradise
My indiscreet heart
How it longs for that sweetheart
That I left in old Monterey
